New Braunfeb trial transit Sjjslcni appeals to be low but compared to what idenUp has ranged 91 week or Tjnt icHaiie has totaled sonabk this is a nioeweekold system an infant by any ttumbers and data need to be converted to usable mfcfmatkmu For example what is fte physical capacity of the tie rbe city and its makof large euuugli to take advantage of a system Does die design unite ridership Are attitudes and needs sufficient to support a transit system The physical capacity of the system is two 20passcnger Ikota maitingi tmderfhe pnamit design JOtripsperday and staffing at 62 bus stops fa theory then IF each bus were filkd to absolute maximum capacity for each of the 10 nans dwe would be 400 oneway trips per day two buses x 20 passengers each x 10 runs per Are there enough people who need or want the trans postaskia to fiD the buses to capacity More numbers The population of New Braunfels is currently estimated at peopfe Of this total seniors and disabled are esti mated to make up about 35 percent or II 200 people make op between 35 and 42 percent of the population or between I and IfTOOpeople At present tourist season peaks between midJune and midAugust Estmfe of tbetourirt influx into New Braun fets range riom to 1 mQHonormore JftiktlBut is seasonal can vary substantially and concentrated in the midJune to nad August period Using 1 percent die esti matewtmld be tourists at peak season If all the numbers are added together seniors workers the ridership potential would be people per day during the midJune to mid August period and yearfound This number does not include middleschoolers stayathome parents or other parties who might take advantage of the bus system Again to be sale estimate on the conservative side and allow for all kinds of reasons and conditions why people might not take the bus it would be well to exclude 99 percent of this number So if only 1 percent of the potential ridership rode the bus every day Acre would be between 224 and 274 total oneway trips taken 1 percent x and that would keep the buses filled to better than half their capacity How ridership can grow from 15 oneway trips per day on average to 224 and upward toward a capacity of 400 is under review by a transportation task force with recom mendations expected shortly Though an infant system it may well need to move from a crawl to a dead run Stay tuned Lynn
